A woman from Texas reported her boyfriend missing last month. She had shot and killed the man she was sleeping with – then chopped his body with a machete, police said on Monday.
30-year-old Cierra Sutton was arrested Thursday Last week in Jefferson Parish, near New Orleans. She was arrested for her boyfriend’s death, 32-year-old Steven Coleman. The couple lived in an apartment in Baytown, which is in east Houston, when she reported that her boyfriend was missing on August 18. Coleman’s friend, Elisa Delossantos, said that she is not surprised that Sutton is accused of the murder.
“Just from what other people were saying from the experiences they were having together, him wanting to leave that relationship, it seemed like one of those love-hate relationships,” Delossantos said. “Apparently she didn’t want him to go on without her.”
Authorities did not immediately identify a motive in the case.
Coleman was a rapper nicknamed Slim Da Don, actually told a friend several times that if he went missing, Sutton would be the culprit.
In August 16, the couple allegedly got into an argument before Sutton shot Coleman in the head while he slept inside their apartment. Sutton’s 10-year-old daughter was in the living room when the murder took place, police said. Sutton then took a machete, dismembered his body and tossed the remains in several dumpsters, officials said.
“How did we not hear anything? Heard nothing at all,” Said by Mikki Rogers, who lived downstairs from the apartment. “She acted like she knew nothing about anything. She was trying to call him, hadn’t heard from him. Family members didn’t get a response.”
In Baytown landfill, a torso was found on August 22 and it is believed to be Coleman’s. However, investigators are waiting for an official identification.
While Sutton was in Louisiana, she told multiple people about the gruesome murder.
“Cierra had confided to multiple people in Louisiana she had, in fact, shot and killed Steven inside their apartment, dismembered his body and disposed of his remains,” Baytown Lt. Steve Dorris said at a news conference.
He added: “Fortunately we haven’t had anything like this in my 18 years that I’ve been with the Baytown Police Department.”
It is not uncommon that couples fight all the time. However, I think it’s better to work it out before you and your love ones go to bed. Or you might wake up dead (scary movie reference, watch the video below to know what I’m saying). What do you think? Leave a comment below to let us know.[like_button]
